Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
UAH provides students with a quality education through very qualified teachers and (depending on your major) state of the art technology. UAH is a great school if you want a great education for a relatively low price. It's not a party school. It's known for its students high academic achievements, mostly in the engineering fields.
Great school if you want to major in engineering. If you are a Liberal Arts major, you will sit in outdated class rooms because all the funding goes to the science majors departments. This is annoying because this means lack of technology in the class rooms and also opportunities such as internships etc.
My school was great! There are some things I would have done differently, but UAH provided a great experience overall.
My school was a very good fit with my interests. There are a lot of aerospace companies in the area surrounding my school who fill part time jobs with students while they are in school. I worked either part time or full time with an employer every semester I was in school after my sophomore year (co-op program). My school is small, so my professors gave each student individual attention.
I would choose a different degree. I love the degree I did, but I would choose a degree in electrical engineering if I could start-over. I would change to electrical engineering for a bachelor's degree and then do Industrial and Systems engineering for a master's degree. I would do this because it now want to do a master's in Electrical Engineering and take pre-requisite classes. My job is a mixture of industrial and systems engineering and electrical engineering.
Choose a career that is in-demand. Look at jobs posted in cities surrounding where you live and see what degrees companies are seeking in real job postings. Pick an employable degree that you could be happy doing.
